Today we feature our latest entry for the Who North America Doctor Who Cosplay Contest from Jacob Keel of Erlanger, KY presenting his Tenth Doctor.

Jacob Keel 1As a child o’ the 90’s Whovian, I don’t have the pleasure of seeing any Doctor before Eccleston. To be honest, I didn’t even become a Whovian willingly. It started when a friend of mine kept going on and on about it, referencing it in conversations, oblivious that I didn’t understand a single thing she was on about. At first, I just poked fun at it as one of her strange curiosities, until one day I saw it pop up on Netflix and thought, “Eh, what the heck?” What came of it? Years of heckling my buddy and I finally caved in — I’m a bigger Whovian than she is now! Even though Nine was my first Doctor, I always felt a special connection with Ten; I loved his eccentric behavior and erratic thinking, but more importantly, he made me feel hope. When the Doctor told me that I was not just an unimportant speck in the universe, I believed him. It was never a question of who I was going to cosplay from Doctor Who, but when.

Jacob Keel 2This outfit was painstakingly pieced together from eons of trawling Goodwill for the right pieces. You would not believe how hard it is to find a brown pinstripe suit when you’re actually looking for one. (Not to mention that jacket! It’s my pride and joy!) The red trainers were a gift from my Whovian friend who started my obsession. Can’t go saving the universe without a good pair of kicks! Not pictured, but definitely there, are my trusty pocket contents – a banana, fob watch, 3D specs, a ball of yarn, a toy mouse, and even the noisemaker from the Sara Jane Adventures episode. You never know when the need arises!

Voting has been moved to start on September 11th, and end on September 16th, and the results of the Popular Vote and the Judge’s Choice will be revealed on September 17th.
